Transitions (Special Effects)
By Virtual Mechanics
As most of you know, Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape Navigator 4 introduced Dynamic HTML capabilities to the two major Browsers. Dynamic HTML along with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) makes Animation and Interactive input capabilities possible on your Web Site. These advanced capabilities were defined by the WC3 (World Wide Web) to ensure that they are compatible across all Browsers.

In addition to the Dynamic HTML capabilities supported by all conforming Browsers, there are several additional Special Effects that are only supported by Internet Explorer. Implementing these Special Effects can be quick and easy provided you are aware that they may not work for all visitors to your site. The following Effects are
available for Internet Explorer only and may be viewed at:

Fixed Background: This effect will fix the background in place as you scroll the foreground. Enter GProperties="Fixed" into the Body tag. Dynamic Scrolling: Internet Explorer only. This effect will
automatically scroll the screen to keep an Object in view. Call the script function 'object.ScrollintoView()' using the id of the object.

Transition Effects: These effects will use a transition as you enter and exit a page. Add the Meta Tags:

Duration= transition time in seconds.

Tansition= a transition effect from 0 through 23. Possible effects are:
0 box in
1 box out
2 circle in
3 circle out
4 wipe up
